Directed by Barbet Schroeder. Screenplay by Charles Bukowski. Bukowski appears as an extra in a bar scene. Seven and one-half stars out of Perhaps almost as interesting as the film Barfly is the story of how it was OKd as a film project. Director Barbet Schroeder, who had spent years trying to have Charles Bukowski’s semi-autobiographical script made into a film, barged into the head of Scrippt film division and threatened to cut off his finger with a chainsaw if the film was not financed.

During his life, Bukowski was a prolific writer who abused his body terribly with bravado but produced great novels, short stories and poems that chronicled the life of the poor and drunken. Los Angeles was the setting for most of his work. Most of Bukowski’s work was autobiographical, and he frequently used the name Henry Chinaski. In Barfly, drunken, acclaimed writer Chinaski meets an older, once-beautiful woman named Wanda Wilcox, played by Dunaway. Wilcox is based on the great love of Bukowski’s life, Jane Cooney Baker.
